I will be traveling to Scotland in early May and staying in Edinburgh for 5 nights. My maternal family came from the Glasgow area (Lanarkshire) and most emigrated to the States in the early 1900's. I am interested in getting a sense of how they lived. Occupations were miners, ironworkers, dairymen, stonecutters, paper mill workers. Can anyone recommend museums or such that may be worth visiting?
I am thinking of doing a private hire to go to specific locations for one day. I have not quite decided the various locations yet but wonder if there are any recommendations for a good company to use for this. Thanks in advance for any ideas you may share.
